Happy Sunday! I have seen a lot of people posting pictures of them working in their classroom and am feeling 1) behind 2) a little anxious 3) a little excited and 4) like summer is almost over, but didn’t it just begin!?
So instead of working in my classroom, I have been working on some ideas for next year! I just finished working on is my new science bundle: Circuits Print-and-go Craftivity!
Not only do I love teaching science BUT my students always love it! 4th grade covers so many fun science topics: ecosystems, earthquakes, rocks, minerals, weathering and electricity! Electricity is always shocking to students! We go over static electricity and take funny pictures with our hair standing straight up. Then, they learn about series and parallel circuits.
The students get to organize their CLOSE reading passage with Thinking Maps. The first read I have them focus on the two types of circuits…
This is a great team building exercise! They love being in control of the learning and showcasing what they learned from paper to real life!
Your class will be shocked with the electrifyingly, fun activities in this Circuits Print-and-go set.
and…. for some Sunday pinning fun… The first 3 people who pin this creativity will get it for free!!! Just pin it and leave a comment below with the pinterest address (for example http://www.pinterest.com/pin/285978645062977875/
What a wonderful way of integrating the arts and science!

I really love to teach 4th grade science too. This is an adorable and educational idea! Thank you for creating it.
Electricity is one of my favorite topics! This unit you created looks great!
